Bloomberg Raising Price Of Bloombergs

Last month, Merrill Lynch’s sale of its stake in Bloomberg revealed that New York City’s mayor is actually worth $16 billion. But apparently that’s not enough for Hizonner. His eponymous firm is now raising prices for its already-expensive, esoteric-information-databases, the Bloomberg Terminals. Nothing like socking it to customers who can afford it.
